I am a mostly stay at home mom and doula with 2.5 boys. I am an advocate for natural parenting, unassisted homebirth, breastfeeding, non-circumcising, cloth diapering, elimination communication, homesteading, home schooling, and more along those lines. I also enjoy knitting, crocheting, sewing, crafts, and drawing.



  1. Hi brambledoula,
    What a great, informative blog – you talk about a lot of things that interest me, so I’ve linked to you from my website so I can visit again and help others find your blog.

    I have a website on primarily EC I’d like to invite you to check out and hopefully consider linking to on your EC page – it is of our family’s experiences practicing EC from birth with our little boy Maven.

    Thanks for considering!

  2. Thanks for the link I will check it out!

  3. WAIT! A breastfeeding CRUNCHY Mom? AND you live in Charleston? And I just read a post on your site about attachment parenting? I didn’t think any other attachment Moms lived here in Charleston! I thought you had to be a devout Babywise follower to live here. Glad to see another one!

  4. Yes in fact there is a HUGE AP friendly mama group out here check it out and get involved.

  5. when i have more than three seconds to figure out the trackback feature, et al i’ll start participating in that. but in the meantime i finally got you on the blogroll of my ‘official’ blog (in addition to the family one *lol*). you have a lot of great input that i feel my clients would benefit from.

    haven’t been able to get on much lately (mayhem breaks out as we speak–despite sickies), but i hope all is going well with you!

  6. Hello,
    Just wandet to say, I have enjoyed reading your posts and thanks for your wonderful blog!

    Sincerely, Jessica

  7. Thank you 🙂

  8. 3 boys now lynn…omg they are so handsome! Email me I miss my late night buddy


  9. Do you live in America?

  10. Hi again brambledoula
    I’m Charndra, creator of the new Tribal Baby Site Part Time Diaper Free. This is a new elimination Communication (EC) resource which is being launched pretty soon.

    I have a unique way of helping visitors to discover more about part time ec, called “The 7 Secrets to Developing your Diaper Free Confidence.”

    I’d like to invite you to make a visit today to my launch page:

    I hope you might consider making a mention of the site on your blog. You can link to any page you prefer, not necessarily the index / home page.

    Perhaps you’d be interested in the page called Adventures in Part Time Pottying. There are great stories there.

    Thankyou for your time,
    Charndra Josling

    P.S You’ll be among my first visitors; I’m sure you’d find my “7 Secrets” a valuable resource for parents considering or practicing EC with their babies; I am ECing my newborn, Jett right now.

  11. I love your site!

    Experiencing a slow PC recently? Fix it now!

  12. Hi! Just wanted to say hi, i think we have a lot in common. I’m working on becoming a certified doula, I have 2 daughters and hope for more, I cloth diaper (LOVE IT), had my second daughter completely naturally and am a huge advocate for that, homeschool….

    I’m wondering how you balance mothering, homeschooling and being a doula? I am very passionate about birth and am really looking forward to helping other women with theirs I’m just not sure how that balance works, would LOVE some tips from someone else who does it!!

    Oh and I saw you live in Charleston, I live in Savannah!

    Nice to “meet” you!
